Parallax

Between the earth and the sky
billions of worried people racing
to climb to the top of an invisible ladder.
If they’d stop to fill their lungs with a different wind
they’d discover that the ladder is a mirage
built on the dreams of another man
who, like you, floats upon this tiny speck
that spins in a direction that none can control.
– Claire-Marie Brisson
